Mercedes-Benz has already made an early decision in favour of the future-proof solution of BlueTec® which is based on SCR (selective catalytic reduction) diesel technology and on higher-efficiency engines which are in turn more economical. Thanks to SCR diesel technology, Mercedes-Benz reduces exhaust emissions and fuel consumption. The initial investment pays off more quickly than you might expect.

From October 2009 Actros vehicles with BlueTec® 5 equipment and exhaust silencers for engines from 302 kW to 338 kW engines have been available.
